how long has it been since you used the playstation? is it new? how much prior have you used the console? is the game in good condition? is the region of the game matching the region of the conosle (NTSC or PAL or NTSC-J)?

if everything matches and the console is older it could be that the laser is dead, which can be replaced and a cheap fix if you are ok with taking the console apart yourself.
